    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    While I hear what you are saying, I do need a switch of some sort...3 hard wired PCs and a server using two cables (in aggregate). The xbox can go wireless, but it is hardwired as well. I am open to getting rid of the R9000 if that is the bottle neck..thanks for that insight. I guess I just...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    Sorry for the confusion...I am only using the xfinity modem right now, but own several others to include the Arris S33. My setup is xfinity modem (bridge mode) > Netgear 9000 router (wifi disabled) > DECO M9 plus mesh. My main rig is hardwired directly to the Netgear router and where i am...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    I cannot argue with your statement, but honestly you have no idea what my needs are from this post. However I agree that these speeds are not needed by most and rationally, maybe not even for myself. For reference, I host a server on my home network that I feel warranted this level of service...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    My xfinity modem shows as a TECHNICOLOR CGM4331COM. Is this an XB7? I mean its white. I can get like 800 from their speed test via hard wire, but anything wifi is like 500 via netgear mesh...nothing near the 1200 my contract has. mostly get 500-600 wired as well...anything over 800 is rare. I...

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    I hear ya, but like you I am watching discords and seen plenty of cards drop that I could have gotten at reasonable pricing. I think the bundles are garbage unless you are needing those things. Just last week there was a Best buy drop of almost all cards and PS5s. I got what I needed like...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    I am running the xfinity modem, a R9000 router and a DECO M9 plus mesh. As mentioned, I would have the Arris as the modem and feel like it was a solid setup. The xfinity modem is "x" factor. I have to follow up with xfinity to see if there is indeed noise or whatever.

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    I am thinking that the Arris S33 will outperform theirs, but that is my opinion. You state that you "went back and forth before getting rid of theirs"...meaning you are using yours right now? Can you share model number/manufacturer? I am still going to call them, but I feel better with my own...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    Once I changed the modem to passthrough, I really only see a message that says just that. I can run speeds tests as I am sure you know via wifi devices, hard wired devices and using multiple sites to try and all are consistent and have yet to get ANYTHING over 900. Since xfinity has a plan for...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    There are many similar posts to this and I have read most, but wanted to know if anyone starting their xfinity service with the ISP provided router and then switched back to their own and the results. I have always used my own modem, and router through Comcast, spectrum and abroad. In Texas I...

    I think you might need to add AddBlock Plus or others to your browser...I use adblock plus, malware bytes browser guard, and duck duck go privacy essentials as normal...then put browser in private mode or use VPN if anything spooks me. I have been on protonmail mail server for years, but...

    What 4k monitor to get for content creation and some gaming.

    Sorry I missed this and for late reply. I am kind of all over the place. I am currently running a Dell U3014 for work laptop, a BENQ EW3270-T for main rig, and a Samsung CHG70 for an xbox console. The Samsung is starting to glitch with heavy distortion and lines across the screen but settles...

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    Good question....not sure. I go there often as I am following a discord that drops all this insight to GPU availability and pretty much look at all the EVGA 30 series as well as B stock to see whats out there. I have a few friends that are still looking for GPUs sub $1k so i just stayed in the...

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    I hear ya! I got lucky and got the cards i wanted last year but it was still a challenge. I am ready for the new tech to drop so all the scalpers are stuck with all that stock and/or have to sell for a loss.

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    Cards are still dropping at regular prices, but you need to be watching via discords, etc. I guess it depends how much effort you are willing to put into it, but also what will you compromise for them. For instance...there are combo deals available on asus right now...

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    Yup...lol. So I totally forgot that I just upgraded my neighbors kids PC and reached out to see if they still had the old one. Got lucky and had a 1070 in it. I pulled out the 3080 and put in the 1070 and boom....all good. Its the vid card and working RMA on it now. Phew...at least now I know.

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    I have a friend nearby that just upgraded system and has a spare vid card that I can borrow. I will try that first to see if it posts and go from there. Having to take everything down to fresh build is just a pain, but I hear ya....if I have to replace the mobo, then I am there anyway if you...

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    Understood and funny enough using UPS as well. I thought that it might have slipped out of the PCI slot, but after moving card to all slots with same result i just cant get past the error.

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    I moved the card to all slots and actually posted in the third and made it several hours to where I thought I was good. Then, you guessed it....VGA error and blackscreen. Funny...just moved from San Antonio Texas and now in Jacksonville Beach, FL...might have hit you up...short drive to Austin...

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    I might try that first just to make sure, but what strikes me as odd is that I did not change anything...just turned off, moved and turned back on. Just perplexed and frustrated.

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    Leaning toward a ASUS ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero or maybe a Dark Hero. TBH, still not sure if the issue is the mobo or the 3080, but I hear ya with the cheap board. Might do that as well....we will see.

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    As Dan_D mentioned, it appears on the small OLED screen on the actual mobo. Sometimes it would show the VGA Error, but then post and run for hours, then sometimes just go black screen and be unresponsive. I am probably just going to get a new mobo, but with upgrade capacity incase I move to a...

    MSI Godlike X570 "VGA Error"

    Machine was running fine...shut it down, boxed up and then moved out of state. So, now that I fired it back up in new location I am suddenly getting this "VGA error" and system just goes black screen while using it or wont even light up the screen when turning on. Everything is seated fine and...

    Have Samsung Note 9 want to upgrade but must have headphone jack

    I really appreciate the reply. I am looking at them now via gsmarena.com comparison chart. Interesting differences between my note9 and these. I really like the Samsung S21 ultra, but totally misses on the the microSD and the headphones, so it is no go. I will dig into these two and see if...

    Have Samsung Note 9 want to upgrade but must have headphone jack

    Ok all you smart phone experts. I have been on this Note 9 for a while, but found that I never use the pen, but use the headphone jack a lot. Additionally, I travel a lot the the microSD slot is important as well. I have been on Samsung phones for years now, so that is where I am the most...

    Do you change your default modem password?

    I have moved around a lot over the years (military) and have always brought my own devices (modem & router) not using the ISPs. I am not sure if I feel more in control, but anyway that is what I do. With that said, I also always change the default passwords, but curious to know if this prevents...

    Warzone on Xbox series X (1440p, 120mhz) crazy lag

    Yesterday, I had the same lag. I did find that I had a Strict NAT from previous OPEN, then saw it had a new IP. I made the IP static, assigned a new port and got that all square. I was able to get an OPEN NAT, and upon review of PINGS within game looked good. Then suddenly pings over 100 and...
